April is National Humor Month!

What do you get when you cross a vampire with a snowman?


Why did I just tell you that silly joke? Because April is NATIONAL HUMOR MONTH! What is the funniest book you ever read? One of my favorites (and it was hard to choose just one) is:

STOP THAT PICKLE! by Peter Armour

When Mrs. Elmira Deeds waddles into Mr. Adolph's deli and asks for a pickle, chaos erupts! The pickle escapes from the jar and a cast of zany characters joins in the chase to stop the pickle as it attempts to run away. This book is so fun to read aloud. I especially like to talk like the "seventeen toasted almonds"!

Have you heard this one?

When does B come after U?

When you steal some of its honey!

A funny author I love is Jon Scieszca. All of his books, from picture books like, The Stinky Cheese Man and other Fairly Stupid Tales, to his chapter books like, The Time Warp Trio, can always make me laugh. Check out his hilarious (and slightly weird) website.


Okay, here is my last joke:

Knock, knock (who's there?)

Cows say (cows say who?)

No silly, cows say Moo!

Do you have a favorite funny book or joke to share?
